Oh yeah Forrest Gump was good.

Friday 13th is alot better than the Exorcist which was not truely scary and lacked suspense. I thought it was just weird.

Come to think of it Friday 13th (the original) should be higher than Turbulence and Turbulence II because they had ALOT of faults.

5.) U-571
6.) A Passage to India
7.) Anna and the King
8.) Forrest Gump
9.) Patch Adams
10.) The Bruce Lee Story

Motion Pictures, such as American Pie, Hot Shots etc. are to my opinion low-level entertainment movies, not worth even mentioning / watching.
Always targeting the same ...
